Leave a comment

As I mentioned in a previous post, we signed up for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share, which means we get a grab-box of veggies every week this summer! We ate a lot of salad last week, and wanted to mix things up this week with a savory soup!

white bean and kale soupIngredients:

  • 2 hot italian sausages (can substitute another type of your liking, or leave out to make vegetarian)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 quarts chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 cup (dry) or 1 can pre-cooked white beans
  • Seasonings: salt, pepper, bay leaves, thyme, oregano, basil, paprika
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 turnip
  • 1/2 celeriac
  • 1 broccoli stalk
  • 4 medium red potatoes

Instructions:

  • Prep: Finely dice onion and garlic. Cut sausage and remaining vegetables into half-bite-sized pieces.
  • Saute sausage, onion, and garlic until browned.
  • Add broth, kale, and beans. Let simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Season to taste.
  • Add carrots, turnip, celeriac, broccoli, and potatoes. Let simmer for 15 minutes or until all vegetables are tender.

Serving Suggestions: over rice or with a slice of bread on the side!

Eat up!
